Not every comic is going to be well known, not even ones by famous comic book creators. Sometimes it’s from before they got famous or sometimes it’s after, they are just simply overshadowed by other things they have created. Here are some books from famous comic book creators that may have slipped under your radar.
According to Gaiman’s Twitter feed (and via The Guardian) he is currently in talks with a studio to pen a script for an adaptation of Mervyn Peake’s landmark fantasy series Gormenghast.
Bill Paterson is reading Neil Gaiman’s short story - ‘The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains’ on Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime this week & Part 1 is now available on the iPlayer. I haven’t read the original story (although it seems to be legally available free online & quite short), but I think it’s probably abridged…
It’s Halloween in space. Written by Neil Gaiman. Penn & Teller are space-comedians. If you’ve never watched Babylon 5, are you not sold somehow?
Writers are not typically gauged by anything other than their writing. Which is fair and right and proper. The work is what they should be judged by, right?
Terry Pratchett is dead and the world is a poorer place for it. But before he left the world, he graced it with many, many, many novels, most of them set in the world (and mirror of worlds) of Discworld. And while Discworld is wonderful (it provokes wonder), that's not the only work he has written. Here are five you…
Neil Gaiman was recently on the Wits American Public Media podcast where he got to read the "worst of the worst" of their "Bad Gaiman Challenge": paragraphs that tried (badly) to imitate Gaiman's style of prose. You can listen to the whole episode here or listen to a funny skit with Gaiman called "Alternate Realty" …
But he challenged George R. R. Martin. So the best one might be that one.
But now what? Douglas Adams is dead and Stan Lee is far away in another country. And surely to old to visit Sweden.
I don't want to color this with my political leanings on the matter, but Neil wrote a piece for The Guardian and I know that a great number of folks here are Gaiman fans.
your argument is invalid.
According to Neil Gaiman's blog, Freemantle Entertainment, who for better or worse have brought us the recent remake of The Tomorrow People, have finalized a deal to adapt his award-winning novel American Gods (and presumably the sequel he's writing) into an American TV series. While it's still early days yet, Neil…
Oh yes. Yes to all of this.
Welcome back, gals and pals, to another Comic Book Wednesday. This week I want to talk about one of the most exciting things in comics this year: the return of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman with a six-issue miniseries titled The Sandman: Overture.
Neil Gaiman interviewed Lou Reed for REFLEX magazine back in 1992. The whole thing is up on Neil's website.
After decades of legal troubles and back-and-forths and he-said-he-saids, Marvelman is back, baby! But, the man who made Marvelman a worldwide phenomenon isn't getting credit for it - and that may be just how he wants it.
I have both the original and the 10th anniversary edition of Neil Gaiman's American Gods, possibly the best book I've read. I've only read the 10th anniversary, authors preferred text edition, and have to wonder what are the big differences within those 12,000 additional words. Anyone know? Google proved fruitless.
While it pains me to give Slate anything other than my derision, one of my favorite authors just did a podcast talking about The Ocean At The End of The Lane. He's always delightful to listen to talk about his writing.
